Flow measurement can be used to ensure product quality, to optimize and improve processes and in some applications accurate flow measurement makes the difference between making a profit or a loss. Many process applications feed the output from a flowmeter into an automated control system to accurately control and regulate the flow of liquids.
LTH Electronics offer different types of flow measurement equipment, Ultrasonic for open channel flow measurement in flumes or weirs, Electromagnetic (Magflo) for the measurement of conductive liquids or slurries in pipes or non- intrusive time transit flow meters for in pipe measurement.
The Flowmeter is a compact Ultrasonic transmitter for open channel flow measurement, with a 4-20mA output for instantaneous flow transmission, two relay outputs for impulses/ volume transmission and set point or diagnostic alarm functions and a MODBUS RTU output.
The Swing controller takes up to 2 sensor inputs, has 5 relay outputs and can display both the Instantaneous and the Totalised flow.
Both the Flowmeter transmitter and Swing controller are suitable for use with Venturi, British Standard or Parshall flumes and have pre-programed flume dimensions simplifying the setting up procedure.
For in pipe measurement we can offer the SGM-100 series of Time Transit flow meters which are suitable for conductive or non-conductive fluids which contain suspended solids. These can be used for Steel, Cast Iron or Plastic pipes and pipes lined with Cement, Rubber or Plastic.
The SGM-100 Flow meter can be used with Clamp on transducers or insertion type sensors offering accurate measurement in pipe sizes from DN15 to DN4000. The SGM-100 series Wall mounting and portable flowmeters when used with clamp on transducers offer the great advantage of not having to install the transducers into the pipe making installation relatively simple as they can be fitted retrospectively without interrupting the process. This greatly reduces the installation costs.
The SGM-100H portable system is ideal for applications where temporary flow measurement applications are required and also to check the calibration and operation of fixed flow meters.
LTH offer a range of Electromagnetic flowmeters for use on liquids with conductivities greater than 5μS/cm even where suspended solids are present in the liquid.
The RPmag62 is available as a compact or remote mounting option in varying sizes from DN25 to DN1600. Both the Instantaneous and the Totalised flow can be displayed over a wide working range. There are a choice of linings, electrode materials, power supply versions and output options to choose from to suit your flow application.
The Pmag Electromagnetic flow meter is suitable for use on conductive liquids in the temperature range of -20 to + 60°C and is available in sizes from DN10 to DN1000. The Pmag is available as a compact or remote mounting option in varying sizes from DN25 to DN1600 with a choice of electrode materials, power supply and output options.
The Smag Electromagnetic flow meter is suitable for use on conductive liquids in chemical, pharmaceutical and food applications and is available in sizes from DN10 to DN150. The Smag is available as a compact or remote mounting option with a 304 Stainless Steel sensor body, a choice of DIN 11851 or SS304 Clamp flange process connections. There is a choice of electrode materials, power supply and output options.
